FL - ME ... Where are the Pianos?

FL - ME ... Where are the Pianos? - 06/30/12 04:33 PM

We're leaving July 7th, heading to New England.

Should be up around Rockland, ME around the 11th.

Mostly traveling along the coast.
Would like to find some places along the way that I might be able to play a piano.

Partly because I love playing, partly because I have arthritis in both hands and playing helps relieve the pain.

If you have any ideas about where we might find pianos to play along the way, pleae share them.

If it is convenient, we'd love to have you back. We have a freshly restored 'D' that's not yet delivered among other fun things.

You can drop by my place to play...I have an afternoon rehearsal on the 8th, but few other pressing plans around then. It's a big old Mason 9', but warn you it needs new hammers. and maybe whippens. It would be nice to meet up again. I'm in outlying NYC...you can PM me.

You know you have a place to visit in Philly Frank. We have some gorgeous stuff right now as well.

Thanks Rich,
We're pretty much going to drive straight through going up, but we're going to meander coming back.
A visit to Cunninham Piano (and maybe a side trip to Dalessandro's) would be fun.
I'll give you a call when we are coming through your area.

If you're coming up I-95 you should stop at Rick Jones pianos. He's right off the freeway in Beltsville, MD and always has an amazing selection of pianos.

Good thought Pianolance.
I've known Rick for years, and he's an advertiser with us.
But I've never been to his store.

We are pretty much driving straight through going up, but intend to take our time coming back. I've printed the details out and put them in my trip folder.

Thanks for the invite Steve.

We'll try to make it by on our way back to Florida.
I'll call ahead so you can disappear, I mean make sure you're there :-)

Just north of DC and right off 95 on Rt 1 is Rick Jones Pianos. It's a very large warehouse with lots of great pianos. I used to drop in there every once in awhile when I lived in Maryland. Here's the website...

Have a good trip and thanks for all your work!

Hi Frank,

On your way back you should definitly stop here again.

By then we should have a special surprize that I'm quite certain you'll be very intersted to try! cool

Don't know if it will be in Stamford or NYC by then but either way you should plan to stop by...
Regards,

Ori

It's been years since I posted here, and I just started lurking again, but if you do stop through Philly, please let me know when. I met Rick once, and he is a great guy (anyone in the Philly area and looking for a piano would do themselves well to stop by and talk to Rick). I would enjoy meeting you, too, Frank, and hearing what some "arthritic" hands can muster up (from the sounds of it, quite a bit)! smile
